It’s finally here! The results of the second Survey of Paleoartists have been published. As you may recall, the survey was held in 2019, from the beginning of March until the end of July. This time around, Pablo Lara Herrera headed up a parallel survey focused on a Spanish-speaking audience, bringing in an additional 38 respondents. I’m grateful to Pablo for helping to get this survey in front of more eyes! We ended up bringing the total to 648, which may have been a bit short of my goal of 700, but it was still a significant 85% increase over the 350 responses of the 2017 survey. As with the last edition, Matt Celeskey did the number crunching, compiling the results into a document that made it easy for me to create the charts for the report. His work organizing the data is crucial, and I’m grateful for his help.
To read the full report, click here. I’ve ditched the PDF format of the last round in favor of a dedicated web page, with a focus on improved accessibility. It was actually pretty refreshing to get back to basics and code it from the ground up in HTML and CSS. I hope it proves useable, enlightening, and spurs conversation!
